Our haunt business is up from last year. A bad economy seems to drive people to seek escape, especially students, who are only young once and don't plan to wait till middle age or retirement to enjoy their youth. The Feds printing $600 billion to pay off debts will only hurt the economy (which is why they waited to do it until after the election) but things are bound to improve eventually. It's just going to take five or ten years for the giant inventory of house foreclosures to be sold and for things to turn around. Let's hope Washington doesn't add to many trillion in debt between now and then. Printing money to pay the bills never works in the long run.
